Dashboards allow you to quickly view data for how your contact center is functioning. A dashboard is a canvas upon which you can display groups of widgets. Widgets present specific types of data about your contact center, such as the current queue of contacts or the number of agents logged in. You can create different dashboards to display categories of information, such as data for a specific team or campaign, or for a specific range of time. Editing a dashboard allows you to configure widget settings, where you select details for data you want to display.
